In a very tight race for Erie County executive, Democratic incumbent Mark Poloncarz will see another term.
Poloncarz took the seat in 2012. Before that he served as the county comptroller for six years.
Poloncarz spoke to his supporters following his unofficial win against challenger Lynne Dixon.
"Thank you to all who believed in our message of moving Erie County forward. Because of your belief in our work, and the direction we are taking this county, we've been sent back to complete the job we've started,” he said.
Dixon currently serves the Erie County Legislature's 9th District but gave up her seat prior to the election.
